It’s that time once again . . . . Durham students, parents, faculty and staff are invited to visit our annual Scholastic Book Fair during the week of Monday, February 29th through Friday, March 4th. Shopping hours are 8:30 a.m. until 3:45 p.m. (with a 1:30 closing Friday afternoon). Students will be visiting with their Reading classes (Origins and Spanish for 8th graders) on designated days but are welcome to visit other times as well with passes from their teachers. Scholastic earnings support 100% of the media center’s trivia prizes like this September’s The Maze Runner paperback giveaway and October’s Spooky Books Trivia, as well as goody bags for students who participated in this past summer’s Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge. School supplies like pencils and fun, complimentary bookmarks offered at the circulation desk are also purchased with Scholastic credits as are many of the displays and signage featured throughout the year. The recent additions of two device charging stations, and the multimedia table, have also been made possible because of annual book fairs. Plans are also in place for a media center furniture refresh for the spring which will be funded solely by this fundraiser. For additional shopping options, be sure to check out our Online Fair which will run from Monday, February 21st – Friday, March 4th with books shipping to the school around a week after its close. The Durham Media Center appreciates your support in its efforts to get books in the hands of its students.
